the president of the united states who managed to win a very contentious re-election contest. chris christie has managed to be elected a republican governor in democratic new jersey and he's a big guy which some people are worried he may not be healthy enough to be president because of that. a whole other study done in "psychology today" a little over the year ago that says a wider a ceo's face is the, the more aggressive and successful he may be. only talking about hes here. let's take a look at a couple of examples. one of the most successful and least successful stocks in the fortune 500 last year. u.s. airways versus super value. the ceo of u.s. airways is doug parker. his face is kind of wide, but the ceo of super value which didn't do that well, he isn't exactly gaunt, so, maria, i don't really know what to tell you. all i know is one thing is neither study talked about women ceos. back to you. >> weren't going into that one. >> not going to touch it. >> thanks, jane. jane wells, wendy,'s, meanwhile, one of the top burger chains in the united states, speaking of posting better than expecte
